Even the most beautiful stellar model is not worth anything if one does not know whether it is stable or not. Stability is discussed again and again throughout this book. Here we review the different types of stability considerations necessary for stars. We intend to make the basic mechanisms and concepts plausible rather than present the full formalism; the reader will find this, for example, in the review article by LEDOUX (1958).
